The modern workplace is on the move. Transient workforces, a range of different working styles and a whole host of changing technology have created offices in a constant state of flux. As a result the modern office needs flexibility at its core.
For a significant part of Staverton’s history, agile working has informed our approach to office furniture design – creating pieces that can adapt and flex with ease. Whether it’s a sit-stand desk to accommodate the preferences of a user throughout the working day, or designs which share componentry to enable retrofitting and repurposing in the future, our understanding of agility is central to what we do.
It’s against this backdrop that we have designed our newest piece of office furniture – the Freedom Table.
The Freedom Table is the very embodiment of what it is to work in an agile way. It features lockable castors, so it can be moved around the office with ease, and it is height adjustable, to accommodate the different needs of one or multiple users.
But perhaps its most innovative design feature is that it is equipped with a battery pack, which eliminates the need for connection to a fixed power socket. It also includes USB outlets to make it super easy to charge laptops and phones.
Jamie Wilson, Sales Director at Staverton said: “Freedom is central to the hybrid working concept as today’s employees want the freedom to choose how, when and where they work. Consequently they need workplaces and office furniture to support those behaviours. The Freedom table does just that because it’s multi-purpose, tech-ready, mobile and inclusive.”
The Freedom Table is the result of Staverton’s experienced team of in-house office furniture designers with input from the power specialists OE Electrics, who developed the ANIMATE click-and-connect battery power technology it uses. OE Electrics launched ANIMATE at the Workspace Design Show earlier this year with the help of a different Staverton product, the SOS2 mobile sit-stand desk.
Jamie at Staverton added: “It was a real pleasure to help OE Electrics with the launch of ANIMATE and then to collaborate with them as we developed the Freedom Table.”
“At Staverton we have always prided ourselves on integrating data and power into office furniture with ease, and we’re well known for clever and concealed cable management. The Freedom Table is an evolution of that, as it avoids the need for cables all together.”

Jamie concluded: “A mobile workforce needs mobile furniture with power. A mobile workforce needs the Freedom Table.”
